You have to control diabetes first and then have to get the infection checked as we may have to think of phimosis or balanitis.

first and foremost is to control hypothyroidism. If that is not done then, weight reduction is not possible. If that achieved, then you can work on weight reduction. There is no easy way for reducing the weight. You have to following things: 1) take a restricted diet, that gives exact calories based on your ideal body weight (height in cms - 100 = kgs) and your daily exercise quantity. 2) spend at least 1 hour every day on exercise, brisk walk covering 5 to 6 kms in 1 hour, should be undertaken, 3) avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods and pastries, 4) consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and fruits, 5) avoid high fat cheese, butter, margarine and other saturated fats 6) if possible join a gym where you can do workouts under instruction. But most important is following a strict dietary regimen.

Diabetes affects the nerves in our limbs adversely. That is why, limb pain is a common complaint among diabetics. What you can do is, take folic acid andethyl cobalamine, eat lots of green vegetables, have milk and milk products. Exercise regularly and keep your blood sugar under check.

For hypothyroidism only treatment is taking tablet thyronorm in the recommended dosage. Once the condition comes under control skin and lip will be normal. You may meet a local dermatologist if need be.

For diabetes follow a diet low in carbohydrate, low in fat and high in fibre. Walking for 30 mins a day for at least 5 days in a week is recommended. Reversing is possible if you follow diet and exercise (only if your blood sugar are slightly elevated)

With such high sugar level it's clear he is diabetic it is important to get him clinically checked from an endocrinologist and then take treatment in the meantime let him not have any direct sugar products and cut down on carbohydrate consumption he should exercise regularly for 45mnts to 1hr in any form like brisk walk etc.

I will also prescribe medicines that will speed up the time to achieve your weight management goals. Do reply back for private consultation.

Shaking Hands Can be a Sign of Thyroid Disease

DM - Neurology
Neurologist,
Shaking Hands Can be a Sign of Thyroid Disease

Are you aware that shaking hands can be an early sign of thyroid disease?

Yes, that's right! Even in patients who have a low thyroid function, shaking of hands can appear when the dose of thyroxine becomes too high - and it can be a reliable indicator to titrate the dose (which means, if an increase in dose of thyroxine makes the hands start shaking, then the dose should be reduced). In hyperthyroidism (or excessive thryoxine hormone synthesis states in the body), one of the cardinal symptoms is shaking of the hands.

So how do you know for sure it is due to thyroid hormone excess? And how do you differentiate this from other kinds of tremor?

You have to persist with a low carbohydrate and low fat high protein diet. Stop all cereals, sugar, bakery products and desserts. Take the white of 2 boiled eggs and lots of fruits and green vegetables and salads. Go for an hour long walk every day. If you don't loose weight soon you will develop high BP. For more details read the health tips I have written on this website OR send me a personal question.

Hi. Hope you keeping a check on your blood sugar level. Joint pain could be due to elevted uric acid level. Please get a serum uric acid test done. There are some simple exercises for knee pain. It would be advisable to consult a yoga teacher or a physiotherapist. If the pain becomes unbearable, you can take a pain killer.

Mr. Lybrate-user, looking at the details given show that diabetes is uncontrolled. Needs better control, either through improved treatment and/or diet and exercise. First thing your fasting and pp should be 100 mg and 150 to 160 mg and hba1c% <7. So it is essential to achieve that kind of control, then only all symptoms can be controlled. As regards the precautions: take a balanced diet, providing exact calories based on blood sugar levels, ideal body weight and extent of daily exercise. Plus you should consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and permitted fruits (100 g a day). Plus exercise daily for at least 1 hour. Avoid alcohol and smoking. In other words you have to follow a modified lifestyle.
